I realized there was not even one 2020 Trip Report on this 13er. So, here you go! It qualifies as quite an excellent, memorable way to climb another Front Range mountain via my indicated relaxing line. I highly recommend our chosen path. It is straightforward. Understand health-minded City-side training does certainly assist with completing the hike though.

Please continue enjoying that Alpine Country mecca when you can. We truly are fortunate here. I will keep writing Beta and Trip Reports for others utilization, too.

Thank you kindly, folks
